Are you seeking epic uncrowded waves and adventure in a safe and ecological place?
Well you have Found it !!
I welcome you to surf Rote at my surfing heaven, where I have built (to minimize your impact on the environment ) an eco-friendly housing for surfers hunting barrels , fisherman seeking big game and people wanting to enjoy a relaxing time under the palm trees on clean golden beaches.
Set on top of the hill looking over the world class wave Boa (one of Rotes best right hand surf spots), we find Boa Hills. Almost all materials used for the house and bungalows are natural and locally found.
The accommodation is powered by a top of the line solar panels.
We collect rain water and all our waste water goes into gardens.
We also grow plenty of fresh organic vegetables and herbs.
We will provide you with delicious and healthy set cooked meals. Fresh fish and vegetables, free range chickens and pigs, some imported goody’s and awesome dessert that you won’t forget !!

Get to Boa Hill Rote
The adventurous way (its actually not that hard)
You will need to get a plane ticket from Bali or Jakarta or Surabaya to Kupang.
The airline company that fly to “El Tarik” Kupang airport are
Once you arrive in Kupang you will have to stay one night on the spot. There is a few hotels to choose from with prices ranging ofrom 15$ to 60$ a night. Getting a hotel from the airport is really easy. I recommend the Crystal hotel for those who can afford the 60$ other wise the Sylvia for 35$ is ok. Once you have chosen and arrived at the hotel, make sure to ask the reception or someone there to help you get a ticket for the morning ferry going to Rote. The ferry company is named “Bahari express” it leaves every morning at around 8.30 from the main Kupang Harbor named “Pelabuhan Tenoh”. I recommend arriving early if you have not bought your ticket beforehand. The ferry ride will take more or less 2 hours from Kupang to Rote.
Arriving in Baa Harbour Rote, there will be a myriad of bemo’s (local transport vehicles) wanting to get you to your final destination. You might have to bargain quiet a lot, the charter of a Bemo is around 25$ to 30$ . If you have contacted us beforehand we will send our car to come and pick you up.
The very easy way!!
